A good impression of the making of a good movie...
19 October 2001 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I thought that this promotional short was pretty good. It gives a nice impression of the crew and the filming location. The warm weather and the rough location made it difficult to film. On the other hand it was paradise; almost unaffected nature. It really encourages you to see the movie.
